and corporations. yet my friends on the other side my friends continue pushing this approach in the name of deficit reduction, but their own leadership admitted we don't have a debt crisis in the country. the architect, congressman paul ryan, said we don't have a debt crisis. speaker boehner said it's not an immediate problem. why should we enact this budget while democrats have a balanced approach to protect the middle class. why should we pass a budget that gets 66% of its cuts from programs for people of low or moderate income. why should we pass a budget that cuts pell grants that helps students or cuts the snap program that helps to feed 48 million people to give a $200,000 tax cut to millionaires? the budget put forward by the congressional black caucus continues the snap program to prevent americans from going hungry. while at the same time, reducing the deficit by $2.8 trillion over 10 years. the american people know we can't cut our way to prosperity, nor can we succeed by pursuing the same failed policies that undermine our economic recovery. the congressional black caucus budget offers a
and leave a nearly $6 trillion hole in the deficit that would lead to tax increases for middle-income families. that isn't balance. that is total imbalance. at the same time, republicans propose cutting $3.3 trillion from programs for people with low and moderate incomes, including hundreds of billions of dollars for food nutrition and medicaid programs. so i want to end by asking the republicans when they come and talk about their tax proposals to name a specific that they would address. it's not in the republican budget. name one, name two, name three. otherwise, it's worse than empty. the chair: the time of the gentleman has expired. the gentleman from wisconsin. mr. ryan: with that, mr. chairman, i yield three members to the gentleman from indiana, r. rokita. mr. rokita: i thank chairman ryan in bringing this budget to the floor. i rise in high support of it. i also am very proud, one of the highest honors i have had in my short time here to serve on this committee. not because of chairman ryan only, but because of the members. by members, i mean republican and democrat mem
and better jobs for the american people. after all the budgets that never balance and record deficits, job creation, we would be coming off the four best years in modmodern american history, because we had four $1 trillion deficits in a row. another that will, quote, only be $850 billion this year. that's yielded us less than 2% growth a year. we all know if we took the number of americans that have left the work force and recalculated unemployment rate, it wouldn't be 7.8%, it would be about 10.5%. the path that my friends on the other side recommend doesn't work. and the balance in both the r.s.c. budget and ryan budget are much more promising course. they achieve that balance by not raising taxes, while not raising taxes. i think that's very important, too. we certainly aren't undertaxed in this country. my friends on the other side clearly believe that we are. they are going to offer multiple tax increases in all their budgets. i like the budget that does not require tax increases. finally, both these budgets, the republican study committee budget and the republican budget, come to gri
, there is a budget, and it is well-done. and it has strong deficit reduction and strong investments. it's balanced in a way that the ryan plan is not. it saves medicare where he destroys it. it invests in education and infrastructure, where he destroys that. his budget budget is a wrecking. our budget, you should the able leadership of senator murray, is a path of -- an optimistic path to our future, not a pessimistic, painful plan that mr. ryan has put forward in the name of the republican parliamentarparty.now, you are a filibuster, and it is possible that we could end it, but i will tell you this: we are trying for some friendship and comity across the aisle right now. we want to keep the government open. okay, so the senator from kansas stood here last night and said, the reason he is filibustering -- he never used that word, but the reason he is insisting that we spend 30 more hours, 40 more hours, 50 more hours on this, last year's business, which is last year' year's appropriation, is because he demands to have a vote on his amendment that he feels very strongly about. and it has to do with
the federal budget surplot plus or deficit. obviously it's been some time since we have run anything like a significant budget surplus we went into the recession carrying a farrell substantial deficit and obviously that really ballooned and got much much worse and what we are facing now are really the biggest bulletin deficits that the united states economy has faced since the second world war we are moving in the right direction it's getling smogger and it's still a farrell daunting challenge and this is what was westbound bend the whole fiscal cliff last year and we ended up with an 11th hour deal to avoid the worst of the fiscal live kcliff and i'm not going to read all of the stuff on this slide but basically what we got was tax increases that effect the working poor primarily and the very affluent and not really not much of an impact on the middle class and you can may be have your own political opinions about that but the spending cuts didn't really take much effect at all. the spending cuts are now poised to go into effect march 1st and to make thing more interesting we run back in
deficits with no end in sight doesn't lead to prosperity, doesn't lead to growth. it leads to financial ruin. i'm also the father of four great kids, two in college and two in high school. they know that as a family they have to plan ahead for the future. we need to create a budget and then live within our means. these are the same principles that my parents past down to me. -- passed down to me. these are the values that montana's families live by each and every day. those values are exemplified in montana's own state legislature. we're the only constitutionally -- where the only constitutionally required duletty is passing a budget. in -- duty is passing a budget. in fact, when they adjourn in a little over a montana, they will have given montana a balanced budget, just like they did last year and the year before and the year before that. it seems simple -- live within your means, spend no more than you take in, but it's not so easy here in washington. right now we are presented with two very different visions for our country, two visions that will lead to two very different outcomes
through a state where wisconsin had faced a multibillion dollar budget deficit, we were having double-digit tax increases, and we saw some of the record job loss that we've seen in the past. so what did we do? we came in and took that deficit, $3.6 billion, and today it's nearly half a billion dollar surplus. we took up -- [applause] we took a state where taxes had gone up, and we not only lowered the overall tax burden for the first time in years, property taxes on a median value home had gone town in each of the last two years. [applause] and when it comes, and when it comes to jobs under my predecessor's term, wisconsin had lost 133,000 jobs, and back in 2010 a survey showed just 10% of our employers thought we were headed in the right direction. today we're gaining jobs and 93% of our employers say wisconsin is heading in the right direction. we can lead with an optimistic message. [applause] simply put, we showed in our election that when people realized the debate was between who do you want in charge, the big government special interests n this case the employee unions, or do y
at some of the people to solve the leadership deficit, chris christie, marco rubio, we have a cast of characters for the 2016 race that's different than the cast of characters in the 2012 race, so i think there's a little silver lining in that for republicans. >> let's listen to what jay carney had to say about the new republican report. >> the best way to increase support with the public for your party is to embrace policies to public supports. >> howard fineman, jay carney makes sense every once in a while. >> and he did right there. and this report from rnc read like a soviet five-year plan. we will have more production and we are going to reach out to the ethnic minorities that we don't understand. it had very little relationship to reality, except there was a distant sound of their realization that for example on gay rights, they're way, way wrong. hillary clinton today came out in favor of supporting gay marriage. young people in the rnc's own report, young people are the ones leading the way on that. i'll give reince priebus credit for saying in that report that the issue of
and bennett, the head of this new party on the right. it's unclear to me, i think you have a knowledge deficit that you didn't have the last time around. when you had someone with barak's experience, begin's experience, all these guys are gone. and the question is, does that mean the wheels, the brakes have come off the train? and that now it's more of a runaway car? or are you saying, no, not at all. livni might be there, and there'll be people who might not have the same amount of years of experience, but are maybe counterpoints to some of the other forces. so what's unclear to me yet is to what extent that forum that netanyahu relied upon, how central is that going to be? what is going to mean the loss of that knowledge, that deficit of experience? but i do think for the key factor, he definitely sees that his goal is that israel just be a normal western country, that the middle class have a better quality of life. sounds very familiar to people here. but he has said that the road to that is dealing with palestinian issue. not dividing jerusalem, but everything else. we've got to work this

are possible in the afternoon. we need the rain. we are nearly 4" in the deficit to 6.5" in a deficit. periods of light rain in the north bay tonight. most of us get our rain tomorrow morning. kristen? cheryl? >> thank you very much. in san francisco, the bart station at powell street is opened against after bart service was stopped. sky 7 was over the scene. the object was found at market street before 7:30 this morning. fortunately it was harmless and police cleared the scene after 8:00. >> there has been another set back for both world renowned chez panisse after a fire two weeks ago. we are learning the damage is much more extensive than originally thought. the owner and chef alice waters say it damned the downstair and upstairs porches. she says that the repair work will be more significant project since both areas will need to be demolished. she hoped to re-open the restaurant in mid-april but that is unlikely to happen now. >> relatives of a san jose man shot to death by police are outraged this morning. the officers say the man in a stolen car tried to run down an officer last night an
account deficits, we're not shipping as much joe seas? >> when people think of the economic situations, they think of the u.s. but what it will do, it will cut into the u.s. deficit and it will cut into the chinese surplus. and you ask the average economist for the last three or four years before the crisis, during the crisis, after the crisis, what's the global economic problem, number one, the answer probably isn't microimbalances. trade surplus in the u.s., trade surplus and china. what i didn't know is that still more than half of the u.s. deficit of goods and services is energy imports. >> and that's going to go away? >> as things are going, that might be going away. at the same time, china surplus will suffer from the tracing of independence of china. >> that's strong dollar weak yuan. becky. >> just an observation. >> first, tight oil, i haven't heard of this before. i know where the marcellus shale fields are. where is tight oil? is it in the same sort of locations? >> same. traditionally, coming out of gas yields because of this huge different between gas and oil prices. which
and deficit. i voted against the solution for the fiscal cliff because the headlines would say the fiscal cliff is avoided, and there were three elements. we did not avoid any of them. we raise taxes on every american. we put sequestration down the road and we did zero on deficit problems. we are facing total economic chaos if we are not careful. host: republican caller. pennsylvania. caller: in response to the fiscal cliff, i find him very -- i do not know, i do not believe what he is saying. he is talking about a fiscal cliff, but you want us to accept the people here illegally and give them something they have not earned. i do not understand what republicans are doing. i am a conservative. i do not want amnesty. i do not want them here. host: you might have missed what the congressman said earlier. i will let him respond. guest: what she is saying is she does not want amnesty, and under president bush he had a strong amnesty plan and i said i would not back it. total amnesty like the one president reagan did will cause a lot of problems here and i think we need the workers. obviously,
run into a deficit at the 2nd street project. if we work on the other funding sources for masonic, for example, the revenue bonds and cost reduction at a helps us get a little bit more towards the second street project but we also have to address the segment ability and the projects to be able to provide to the man sell project. that's what we are working on now. >> i want to reiterate a promise you made a few months ago that we intend to come to see you to fund all of those projects. the response has been very cooperative. the prop k update will help us a lot and a huge help is the masonic, the shear size of it is so big. the mta is aware of the size of it and hope we can find more funding. i hope we can spread the love around to receive the needed equity. >> great. i will hold you to that >> i did have a question. my understanding is that there is 2 million in transit planning funds that the mtc as granted to our planning department and wondering if we can request handout you the planning department is going to prioritize that? >> sure. the transportation authority is working on
that the republicans are a little bit too root canal, a little bit too debt-obsessed, a little bit too deficit-obsessed and don't talk about the economy and jobs, which polls still show are the number-one issue. >> yeah, they've got to go back to reagan and jack kemp to stop acting like consequence at this pated accountants and get focused on what makes this economy grow. and the way you get revenues, not by raising taxes, by growth. if we had normal growth rates, we would get another 4 or 500 billion right off the bat. that's what they should focus on. all a means to an end. on social security, stop coming across that you're going to, you know, do something to grandma and instead talk about the idea, which they haven't, they don't touch it, of having accounts for young people with proper controls where they own the fruits of their labor, not washington politicians. make it positive instead of this -- as you say, root canal, that was more graphic. >> i think that -- i don't want to get -- i want to talk about the corporate tax, but i want to add to this, i think in a sense obama was right. and
in deficit this project has will be greater than $164.5 million. >> no. we are trying to keep it at this amount and so we had a recovery line item of $55 million that is why we are going to be talking if we can't get that number down we are rebidding in smaller package and that will be the recommendation. and again, it is a policy call on how much we want to have in reserves and contingencies. you can make the policy call to drop that number down, we are just rolling the dice as the director reiskin is attest to you. >> we will be coming back to the board on march 25th with a recommendation of what to do further with the steel bid after the team has had a chance to look at the bid more closely. >> we have only 7 minutes left at this point, before we lose quorum because two more of our members need to leave. so, i am not... we are not going to make it through the presentation, and so, i don't
million deficit we had to renegotiate our contract and peenings for the first time and pension that happens an issue in california were part of the state system and still not ready for the shake-out on the development and so, i'll like to think it's -- [inaudible/incomprehensible] level and i think that what it gibbs you time do is to start working on some of these dreams and really give development opportunities and that is what it's like despite the evidence -- the general fund and in our economic outlet team and that we -- [inaudible] and working and -- of that and i know -- and i worked on chinese investments because we are looking at capital investment and is for the amazing growth that the bay area faces. >> yeah i talked to somebody the other day that was familiar with the san francisco budget situation and i remember looking at projections in the future and it was lower so, it seems that happy days are here for san francisco what does this give you the freedom do >>> well first of all, i would not use those phrases, but i'll say that it reflects some of the smart
with the financial deficit. the gun buyback was so successful they want to do it again. >> new york mayor bloomberg has a plan to snuff out the lure an 10 clear county is planning a second gun buyback after a highly successful buy back netted 1,100 firearms. the buy back will be held saturday at the airport on cunningham avenue. the county is using left over money from an early event to pay for this. authorities will pay $100 for each handgun, shotgun, and rifle and $200 for assault weapons. no questions asked. >> today the sonoma board of supervisors will take action to protect the pedestrians and bicyclists. a proposed ordinance being adopted makes it easier to cyclists and pedestrians to sue drivers who intention amendment threaten or harass them. this is pushed by bicycling advocates after crashes that have injured or kills signing lists and pedestrians. it works both ways. the ordinance gives the same rights to drivers threatened by psyche lifteds. >> the california high-speed rail authority is issuing $8.5 million in bonds for the system, part of it sold before construction. this clears the w
. i think you have a knowledge deficit that you did not have the last time around. these three guys are gone, and the question is, does that mean the brakes have come off the train? now it is more of a runaway car? you say no, lapid is there. people who may not have the same experience, but maybe our counterpoints to some of the other forces. what is unclear to me yet is to what extent that for rum -- forum, how central is that going to be? what will that knowledge and deficit of experience mean? he definitely sees that his goal is that israel be a normal country than the middle class has a better quality of life, it sounds familiar to people here. the road to that is dealing with the palestinian issue. everything has to work this out. i don't know what that means. and it gave an interview and was quoted, when the reporter asked him about iran, he said, i have no clue. this is a guy on the inner sanctum of israel. he says, i have no clue. i just wonder how this constellation is going to configure itself. i would hope that a lot of time, the foreign diplomats, whether it is in europ
will be in spring. we have a dry deficit for the year, near 6.5" in santa rosa, and 5.5" deficit in san francisco and oakland and 3.5" in livermore. today we just have spotty sprinkles, mostly cloudy this morning with temperatures in the up if per 40's near 50 and hanging in the 50's at the coast and low-to-mid 60's at noon with thicker clouds and the sprinkles develop in the afternoon and become more organized in the form of light rain during the evening hours but it will be very, very light. temperatures will be mild as the wins come from the south and southwest and near 60 in the evening away from the coast. tomorrow, we will have rain in the morning and it will be spotty in the afternoon and mid-50's at the coast and low-to-mid 60's for the rest of us and 70's in the forecast with breezy and increasing sunshine and thursday the 70's inland but we will be close to 70's around the bay by friday, also. sue? >> good morning, mike, hello everyone, we have good looking commute if you travel san jose, northbound, 87, beyond the h.p. pavilion the off-ramp, we are here and traffic is very, very light.
taxes. i thought the increased taxes would maybe go to taking care of some of the deficit. no. it's simply going to continually expanding the size and scope of dot government, and those taxes are on families, just like obamacare is placing taxes on family. you do not hear the republican leadership saying we're the defenders of the american family, of businesses. we want to unleash this economy so that it will absolutely grow. by the way, about that easter egg hunt. why, if they're going to haste do they even put it on the tickets they were threatening to stall the whole thing? that would be the first time in the history of the easter egg roll that it would have been cancelled for politics. the only other time it's been cancelled, it's for war. it's a stunning thing but all too justify this administration's temper tantrum over wanting to have a complete free rein to spend as much as they want. >> neil: eggs actually. they don't know. i'm done. i'm done. thank you very much. this will be our lead issue tonight. why this guy who did this dance is really wigging out right now. david w
is not in there. too much deficit reduction, 16%. slow job growth, 12%. too little deficit reduction, 10%. guys, these are more normal problems, i would say, than we've had in the past. the european financial crisis, u.s. financial crisis. sue, i would take a victory, yes, there are problems out there. >> i totally agree with you. it's the first time in a long time we haven't seen europe on a list like that. >> thank you, steve. >> absolutely. thanks, steve. >> sure. >> the markets here are a little lower, not all that much, though, given what we've had in headline risk this morning. dow jones industrial is down 38 points and s&p is off about 9. bob pisani is here to tell us what is going on. there's a lot of headline risk in the market today. >> and we're back moving on europe now. >> exactly. given 38 to the downside is not that bad. >> even europe is not reacting that much. let me show you the euro. everyone goes crazy talking about the euro. perhaps the finance minister may be resigning, we're trying to confirm that for sure. that's what we've been hearing. and on words that the governing b
on the economy and creating jobs and building stable middle class than they are on cutting the deficit. yeah, the deficit is an issue. it's not the number one issue. >> why, boehner do that? we don't have an immediate debt crisis. you would see that in the market, right? so boehner is say ing the truth. it is against what he's been saying which is the debt is a problem. why did he do that? >> he said we need to address it over the long term. that means taking steps now. but here's the thing, he is actually opening the possibility that republicans move to more favorable ground because right now the problem is that republicans are emphasizing have been emphasizing root canal economics, only fiscal austerity rather than a more positive agenda. by conceding the point that we don't have an immediate debt crisis, then can you raise some questions. so for example, senator patty murray said let's get rid of the loopholes and deductions. now republicans say, sure, let's do that. instead of sending money to washington, let's make the child tax credit bigger. let's offer middle class tax relief. let's
, will result in 750,000 fewer jobs bn i end of the year. so we say let's tackle the deficit in a smart way, get people back to work and reduce it over a steady period over a period of time and our comes to balance at the same time that the republicans' budget from last year comes into balance. >> on the issue of revenue, i believe your budget has about $200 billion more in revenue than senator murray's budget in the senate. why did you put that in there considering that republicans are so adverse to any new revenue? >> the budget we have in our democratic proposal. if you take it even together with the revenue from the fiscal cliff agreement, is still less total revenue, luke, than was embedded in the bipartisan simpson-bowles agreement. so we have less revenue proposed by that bipartisan group. we couple it with targeted cuts and reforms over a period of time. and if you actually look at the totality of the budget changes we made over the last couple of years, including the $1.5 trillion, we have a higher ratio of cuts to revenue. considering all the revenue than sim spso simpson-bowles did. a
. our rainfall deficit these are just updated now. over 5 and a half inches in san frachblt you need nif and a half inches to makeup to were you should be. you'll notice mer than three inches needed to get to where you should be at this time of year. we're hurting. temperatures in the morning in 40s and we'll start out with partly to mostly sunny skies. you'll notice increasing cloud cover in the north bay. 67 napa. 65 santa rosa. 62 san francisco. 70 degrees in fremont. low 70s here is a look at the accu-weather forecast. and you'll see rain moving in tomorrow night going into wednesday. it's the first day of sprik. we'll see windy conditions behind this system thursday. certainly milder temperatures going into weekend. low to mid-50s, plenty of sunshine. no rain is expected there. clouds along coast, temperatures in the 50s. >> nice. >> thank you up next a study on how often you should have a mammogram. >> this is important for women over 50. oorks a new study involving bay area researchers finds not only is a mammogram for women unnecessary over 50 it could be harmful. a task force ad
know they have a barbershop there? you can go and beat hair cut there. but they are running deficits of $350,000 a year. time to privatize? >> kimberly: time to supercuts. >> dana: speaking of that, we did a google search. if you let the senators know it would not be the end of the world if you had to give up the senate barbershop. look on the map. there are seven places in walking distance from the capitol to get your hair cut. >> kimberly: now give them coupons to go over there. and give it to the barber and start it up. c'mon, i pay less to get my hair done. >> dana: time to privatize the senate barbershop? >> greg: i don't know. look at the success the barbershops have had. good job, guys. >> eric: you got your hair cut? >> greg: they fell asleep at the wheel. i use the great acres analogy. obama's democrats are like the sexy zaza that could expense every vehicle they have. eddie arnold is the guy that always has to play the bills. we have zsa zsa gabor in the white house. it's great because in a sense they're our mother so they tell us thousand use the microwave. might be at nig
the president a major deficit reduction victory or not? if they really believe that needs to be done and the president put something on the table that gets them significant entitlement reform and savings, i think they've got to do it. >> harold, i think the possibility of deals and immigration, possibility of deals on guns, possibility of deals on the budget, on the long-term debt, i think the possibilities are actually -- excuse me for being optimistic, pretty darn good on all fronts. you've got republicans who daily are holding press conferences wringing their hands trying to figure out how to save their party. and you have a president who, again, he's a 47%, pretty damn good considering everything. but still, he wants to be over 50% and he wants a legacy. he doesn't want to just talk about what he did the first two years. >> i agree. i believe the prospects for progress on both immigration and gun control are gun regulation. if we get progress on the budget and the debt. i think immigration and gun regulations are easier to win. if the economy hobbles along and don't get me wrong,
whether or not psycho paths have affective deficits. absolutely they do. there has been hundreds of years of psychiatric research shows that they do. you have this two prong thing. on the one hand more dangerous if you release them and don't treat them. on the other hand, they're affectively different. there was a very nice article in the "new york times" magazine on mother's day about children who have these emerging traits and how we would develop and understand and treat them. it's a small percentage. my goal is to develop better treatment so they can keep them off that trajectory towards life course persistent problems. >> are you saying that people that have the brain structure that you have identified will always be lacking in volitional control or impulse receive to the extent that they are criminals? do we have a subset of people that are criminals because of their brains? >> i should really differentiate psychopathy from criminality. there are a lot of reasons why individuals engage in different criminal activity. it's a very small percentage of prisoners that are just about 15 t
to eat right, you know. [laughter] >> that being said, i do believe that deficits in certain essential aminnow acids and other types of things can certainly increase people's impulsivity. they can increase people's chances of not -- of those types of things, yeah. >> and one final question and i'm going to rephrase it a little bit, but why is it that we treat people who have, say, traumatic brain injuries or other diagnosed mental illnesses in the criminal justice system rather than in the mental health system? [applause] >> so what i showed you today was to give you that exact what is neuroscience doing in the legal is system and so that person of the person with the tumor, you could all see that and so can a radiologist. but the else that we do know of those images. no radiologist can just see by looking at them. we are so sensitive to individual differences in i.q., in age, in all of these different availables, psychopathy scores, whatever it is, we can develop beautiful pictures of these things. so the question is, how is the legal system going to deal with all of these different,
but that's actually a little bit higher than what we were projecting earlier tonight. rainfall deficit it has been really dry. so far the national weather service is reporting the driest second dr driest start on record for the year for san francisco and san jose. look how far behind we are.so far for the season over 5 and a half inches is what we need in san francisco. to get us about a being to average. oakland 5 and a half inches. san jose close to 4 inches and we need more than 6 inches of rain in santa rosa to get to us where we should be for this time of year. much-needed moisture heading to the bay area. temperatures first thing in the morning in the 40's and you will see cloud cover around tomorrow afternoon. looking at temperatures ranging from the 60's to the 70's for most areas but half machine bay 59 degree degrees. see some sunny break in the south bay but not so much up to the north. clear lake rain first. here's accu-weather 7 day forecast and features rain. for the first day of spring. which is wednesday. windy thursday. certainly see the sun though and temp
are more than 3" in a deficit including san francisco, and livermore, and 6.5" in santa rosa. we will not make that up but we have a little bit in the way of rain coming our way. we will look down and you can see the temperatures are close to where they were yesterday, but the only cool spot is santa rosa and that is the best area to see measurable rain during the afternoon and into the evening hours. as we head tomorrow, we will have rain and then scattered showers and look at spring warmth for thursday and friday. >> good morning, the three worst commutes are jammed. westbound 80 at carlson, no, excuse me, a sig-alert at westbound four in the pittsburg area, three left lanes with multi-cars and a big rig and it is jammed. we have westbound 80 at carlson which is cleared but slow back to hilltop and richmond parkway is a good alternate and in livermore, look at your drive times if you are headed out, westbound 580 under an hour and westbound 4, 71 minutes to concord and over an hour from highway four to the macarthur maze. a rough one out this. >> the alameda food bank is warnin
you think the war is to blame for the deficits we see these days? >> no. it's really not. if you look at where defense spending is today either as a percentage of the economy or budget, it's below post-war norms. under the president's budget it will fall more rapidly. the main cause that we saw today of the explosive growth in spending over ten years, president obama made that worse although the republicans in congress ten years ago didn't cover themselves and the changing face of america. we have many more now supported by workers for the retirement programs and a noble important purpose. they need to be preserved for the next generation. >> you are a proud veteran and something i find to be interesting to some degree of polling is the lack of availability for benefits for those who have served so nobly and come home. i want to put up the stats for you. veterans affairs data. 600,000 veterans have benefits and 245,000 have benefitings back lock logged aier or more. the average is 273 days. the first time claimants from iraq and afghanistan, the average wait is 316 days. how come if y
have such big deficits, what can we do, pay your social security and medicare you paid into your whole life. we're going to have to rob you on that because bush spent all your money on the iraq war. sorry, sorry we don't have enough money. by the way we'd love to start a war with iron. that could cost a couple trillion dollars. later, we'll rob you even more and say sorry we just don't have any money. by the way yes, it was started by bush and the republicans and yes, a lot of democrats voted for it, because as usual, it doesn't matter who wins the election, you get the right wing policy, no matter what. all right let me bring in experts. catherine lutz is part of the good folks who did that project that we just gave you the stats from, co director of the cost of war project and michael from rolling stone and our own notebook here on current. catherine, let me start with you. so a lot of people will look at those clips and say really, $2.2 trillion. where did you get those numbers from? >> well, we had a team of 29 people working on the in connection and our economists basically added
that is about. i do know $16.7 trillion debt, growing at the rate of the deficit every year, is a big problem. >> so they see, they say -- i want to stress it is a big problem, but not an immediate crisis, di does that take the urgency off of addressing it? >> no, it does not, what business, what investment and capital is looking for is they are looking for tre deccability -- predictabilitiy and stannability, which they see the movement going on in the debt itself, that offers neither. >> when you and the governors met with the president, a weeks ago, and you talk, i think you were knee deep in the whole sequestration debate. and president's warning that disaster is coming. >> that was the story. neil: and i thought to myself, governor, i mean, holy cow. however onurus the cuts would be, they are in a 3.6 -- budget, if whining about these cuts what are we doing when we have to put pedal to metal. >> i don't know, i can tell you that the governors said for the most part, we can handle this we've been balancing our budgets since '08 when the downturn came. neil: did any of you say, quit scaring
? >> sure, i do. one problem with the baseline is it brings the deficit later on of the we looked at the budget and realized we could probably balance in five years. the problem is with the way the numbers work is it brings you back out of balance soon thereafter. what we wanted to do is have a credible plan that got us to balancing, got us into surplus. that's what our budget does. there is something unique in the baseline where deficits go down to the mid part of the next ten years and then go right back up. what we want to do is get them on a downward path and keep them down. we not only balance the budget, we go into surpluses and pay off the debt. >> brian: here is chris van hollen. he seems to disagree with everything you say. here is an example. >> i'm used to that. >> let me focus first on what our budget focuses on, which is not just economic growth in jobs in the future, but jobs in economic growth now and in the future. this republican budget is not balanced in ten years. >> brian: is he right? is it not in balance? >> no, it does balance in ten years. they're throwing
, italy because they're all suffering and because of too much spending, too much debt, deficit is too high. all right, senator, congratulations on your big win. i know when you announce if you're running for president you'll do it hear? you want to make that promise? >> oh, yeah, we didn't already announce it. >> sean: no, i'm just checking. thank you, senator. >> all right. >> sean: appreciate it. and coming up on "hannity." >> i studied the constitution myself. i'm roonebly well-educated and i thank you for the lecture. >> i would note that she chose not to answer the question that i asked. >> the answer is obvious no. >> sean: well, she did need the lecture, left wing senator dianne feinstein says she felt, quote, patronized by that exchange simply because she was asked about the assault weapons ban. and ted cruz will join me to respond and later dr. benjamin carson brought down the house over at cpac and hinting that he may run for the white house. i'll ask him about that and much more. this is a jam-packed edition of "hannity." much more straight ahead. ♪ [ slap! ] [ male announcer
again, not surprising, the parties split over taxes, spending cuts, and the deficit. house republicans and democrats from the house are now trying to make their case. >> the republican budget, the same baby with a new dip somewhere there is diaper will have be changed once again. reality is, this budget is very little difference between this budget and the ryan republican budgets of the past. >> you want more tax and spend or you want a future that balances. the question is always why, one or the other. the democrats' tax and spend, you get the same economy that you've had right now. you're going to lose more of your paycheck which every person working today has. >> all right. so another thing happening at the white house here. the easter egg roll might be spared from this government gridlock. all this started when ticket holders to the annual event were told it could be cancelled if lawmakers cannot agree on a plan to prevent the government from shutting down. this year's easter egg roll set for april 1st. looks like it's going forward as planned. we know it's a fun event. a lot of pe
-term budget deficit and the house is poised to take up congressman paul ryan's budget tomorrow. joining me right now republican congresswoman marsha blackburn of tennessee. i want to start by showing everybody the new poll numbers. both sides have taken a hit when it comes to the budget hit. 67% disapprove of the way the president has dealt with the budget. 79% disapprove of the republicans on this. people at home think it's just absolutely ridiculous. will those numbers push both sides to find a compromise before it's too late, before the numbers continue to go down any further? >> you. thomas, i think you're right. they do want to see a resolution to this and what they're wanting to see a resolution to first is the out of control spending. get this out of control spending under control. and that's what we hear from both sides of the aisle, from our constituents, regardless of whether they're democrat, independent, republican, libertarian, you name it. they say, washington spends too much. you don't have a revenue problem. you have a spending problem. get it all under control. that is wha
the loopholes, the revenue you get from that to reducing the deficit. but paul ryan wants to do is take that money from closing loopholes and use it to give bigger tax breaks to people at the top. that's not going to fly. >> we have to take a break. james -- i think you're hanging with us, i don't know if the air ca kisses that harold was blowing to you reached up all the way in new orleans. >> i'll take compliments, particularly from a guy from memphis. >> they're coming at you, we'll take a short break, when we come back, hillary clinton joins the evolution revolution on marriage equality as the movement gathers momentum. some republicans are stuck in a state of denial. we'll discuss, just ahead.

deficit reduction who say this budget won't do it. >> okay, congressman. as you know, house democrats are also out with their budget. joining senate democrats in calling for more revenue as well as spending to create jobs. but paul ryan didn't seem too optimistic about this this morning. take a listen to what he said. >> all the democratic budgets have one theme. more taxes, higher spending, never balancing the budget. if you look at these two budgets, yeah, we're two worlds apart. we're literally on different planets. >> he says you're literally on different planets. do you, therefore, have any hope of a compromise? >> well, not very much with paul ryan. i do believe that as steny hoyer, the himinority whip said he thinks republicans are going to have a difficult time getting votes for this budget. as we remember, the republican presidential candidate in 2012 ran away from the ryan budget which was not nearly as severe as this one is. so he's going to have problems with his own members in the republican conference and on this vote, but, you know, paul ryan is right. we are on very di
anything intelligent with our budget deficit. so the logical default currency is gold. we had a lull in european problems, but thanks to a lack of regulation -- how else did cyprus get out of hand, especially if the same thing happened in iceland, the lull is over. i think this is one more reminder rich europeans will switch from keeping europe owes in banks to keeping gold in deposit boxes. if you have no exposure to gold, buy some now. sure, most europeans may keep their money in the bank. they live there, that's their life. but the wealthy are looking to pull out money over time and the big beneficiary will be gold. amazingly, the european regulators can't help themselves. their incredible incompetencies makes buying gold the easiest decision in the world. these idiots are the gift that climpgs the gold buy every time they take action and this latest action may be the best when it comes to pushing gold higher than maybe since the reign of the former european central banker chief jean, "the fraud" trichet. carfirmation. only hertz gives you a carfirmation. hey, this is challenger.
a knowledge deficit you didn't have the last time around. you someone with obama's experience. all of these three guys are gone. the question is, does that mean that the wheels, the brakes have come off the train? and that now it's more of a runway car? or you say, no, not at all. it might be there. and there will be people who might not have the same amount of yearns of experience -- years of experience but are counter point to the others. it's unclear to me yet to what extend the forum, the netanyahu relied upon, how is that going to be? what is it to mean the knowledge of the deficit of experience? but i do think from what -- the key factor he definitely sees that his goal is israel be a normal western country. the middle class has a better quality of life. but he said that the road to that is dealing with the pam issue -- palestinian issue. everything else you have to work it out. i don't know though you know what that means. you have bennett gave an interview or somewhere quoted in an column when a reporter asked him about it he said i have no clue. it's guy on the inner circl
